Love this little coupe. Have you fired the engine yet? Would like to hear those pipes!
Not yet Greaser, I’m getting close though. I’m working on running wiring so I can fire the Flathead up!

You using a kit for the wiring?
Yes, I bought the 12 circuit speedway harness. Made a mounting plate today to mount the fuse block and relays so I don't have to drill holes in the firewall to mount everything. Should be able to start running wires tomorrow.
Be interested to see how you do the wiring. I am just about to order the wiring for my project.
It will be my first wiring job of a complete car. There are a few things that are going to be challenging, a couple of them are: the inertia switch and relay for the fuel pump, the original 1939 ignition switch and start button running through relays. I'll figure it out one step at a time though.
Yeah, I am worried about the 6v gauges. There is a nice basic wiring diagram in the Bishop book I plan to follow. Of all the stuff in building a hot rod wiring worries me the most.
Used the same harness in my 46, I’d buy it again.
Though it does come with enough wire to wire a 22 ft long car so keep in mind that you’ll be trimming a ton
Moving right along. The lights turned out nice!! I have been eying those same lights.
Thanks as always for the informative videos!!
